Last Thursday I got up and discovered my server went down around 4am. I submitted a ticket to Resellerworkz and they had to hand it over to NOC. I'm still waiting but in the meantime I thought I'd ask for advice on here.
I can still SSH in but I can't start up Apache because the filesystem became read only so it fails when trying to open the log file for writing.
When I ssh in I get this message:
/tmp/RsJGCrJu: Read-only file system
When I try to start apache I get:
root@gravity [/usr/local/apache/bin]# httpd start
fopen: Read-only file system
httpd: could not open error log file /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log.
/usr/sbin/httpd start: httpd could not be started
The last response I got from resellerworkz was:
"The NOC updated us saying that your server got stuck while doing a file system check. We are tryiing our level best with the NOC engineers to make the server online ASAP, we appreciate your patience and cooperation at this time
We will keep you posted, please hold on"
I'm the only one who uses this server and the only things I installed myself were iftop, vnstat, ipf, and bfd. Everything was running really great then all of a sudden I can't do anything.
Should I ask for a credit for the downtime?
I'm a newb so any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
